    I got the same thing on Friday and today using Zonealarm: Win32/Malum.AMQU

    What steps should I take.

    It put two files into quarantine but one just left it in a folder.

    I don't need the data in the folder. Would it be ok if I shredded the folder.

    From another thread someone suggested uploading the infected file to:
    Below is the output.
    eTrust found it as Win32/Malum.AMQU and eSafe as suspicious Trojan/Worm and Fortinet as a possible threat.
    Also I ran the online scan from eTrust to double check but it didn't find a virus.
    a. Is this a concern. b. Why does eTrust return 2 different results and c. If it is concern how does one
    clean it up.

    Should I be concerned or possibly its a false alarm:

    This sound like a false positive to me. Report it to a ZIP containing the suspicious file; password-protect it with the password 'virus' and subject "false positive" Cheers,Fax

    Yeah, ZASS also found this today on my machine - in a folder containing files and exe's that i have had on my machines for over a year now.
    When i originally aquired the file it was scanned with ZASS and was no threat...could this be a -+itive ?

    It's not really a virus, it is a Key Generator identified by your AntiVirus program. You probably have some software executables in there, and this is the key generator????
